That truly isn’t the question. Printing is definitely that needs to be done. Lately, it’s more about “New printer or deal with old printer?”
We currently have an HP printer, but it’s not the best. The scanner doesn’t work, like ever. Well, okay, it works with the tower, but it doesn’t work with WiFi. I prefer working with my laptop, so that’s a major fail.
I’ve been looking at a Canon. I have Canon cameras, so I figure “Hey, it’s a good idea.”
On Brownie Scraps, we were discussing Christmas lists. One of them included printer suggestions . I don’t mean a receipt printer or anything, but actual printers. I pimped out my HP D110a that I got for $50 last year. I love this freaking printer. But, the best suggestion, in my opinion, that I could have given is to not just base the choice on what options the printer has, and how cheap it is. Look at the costs of the ink replacements. Mine are about $14-30, depending on which ones I’m buying. Black is cheap. I’ve replaced it twice. Maybe three times, max. Color? I go through it like it’s toilet paper. Actually, I think I go through ink faster. Why? Because I love to print hybrid projects. I also take a lot of pictures, and I like to print those out as well.
So, if you’re on the hunt for a new printer, make sure you check out the costs of the ink as well!
